FFmpeg (Zeranoe build 20140420)

Vista / Win2k / Win7 / Win8 / Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / WinXP
FFmpeg is a complete solution to record, convert and stream audio and video.

It is a command line tool to convert one video file format to another. It also supports grabbing and encoding in real time from a TV card. The command line interface is designed to be intuitive, in the sense that FFmpeg tries to figure out all parameters that can possibly be derived automatically. You usually only have to specify the target bitrate you want. FFmpeg can also convert from any sample rate to any other, and resize video on the fly with a high quality polyphase filter.

FFmpeg rev12665

Here's the basics. FFmpeg was developed for Linux, but there are builds available for Windows. It's in a constant state of development. It's a command-line controlled program (Do you still DOS?) Documentation is poor. Some video transcoding software utilizes FFmpeg. There are also several "FFmpeg GUIs", which come with a particular version of FFmpeg, which is usually outdated. Often the GUI can not interface with a newer version of FFmpeg. FFmpeg has it's own internal encoders which are quite fast. Some builds of FFmpeg also include open-sauce, free, encoders like LameMp3 and XviD, which allow you to use whatever version of the out-sourced encoder was built into the FFmpeg executable/binary/windows program. <br/> <br/>FFmpeg includes a myriad of command-line options/switches to control encoding. These are very poorly documented (i.e. range and type of permissible values are not given). If you enter '-h' at a command prompt, you'll get a list of available options/switches which may or may not be up-to-date or applicable to that particular version. Interestingly the documentation at the FFmpeg website doesn't list half as many options as you get from the HELP function. <br/> <br/>If you can ever understand all the various options, you may be able to create high-quality encodes. ;-) <br/>If you're a DOS command-line freak, this is your day.
